Bought this car in Feb of 2008 and never looked back. I paid $1600 cash for it. That's really the only reason i bought it was because i could afford it and pay cash. I bought it with 130K and after the past 2 and a half years of owning it, it has given me nearly any problems. The original owner never replaced the timing belt and water pump, a mere $500 job. Other than that all I've done is oil changes and tires and plugs and wires, all done by me. Recently my passenger side lower ball joint went, but replaced it for only $140 for part and labor. Now i just want a new car thats faster and newer and 5 speed. I would definitely recommend this car to anyone!
a/c, gas mileage, my aftermarket sound system (ear shattering, to me)
more comfortable interior, more passing/highway power, better cup holders
